Özet

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neuropsychiatric disorder which is generally diagnosed in childhood. It is suggested that the adults with ADHD have lower levels of romantic relationship satisfaction than the ones without ADHD. The main aim of this study is to examine the relationships among ADHD symptom levels, conflict tactics and romantic relationship satisfaction. During data collecting process three standard scales such as The ADHD self-report scale, the Revised Conflict Tactics Scale and the Dyadic Adjustment Scale were employed and significant relationships among all three variables were found and the level of the ADHD symptoms was clearly related to dyadic satisfaction. From regression analysis it became possible to assert that conflict tactics mediated the relationship between the ADHD symptom levels and the dyadic satisfaction of the sample group composed of 384 participants.
